6 best wireless headphones for watching TV

6 best wireless headphones for watching TV
After a hard day at work, there’s nothing better than kicking back, relaxing, turning up the home theatre all the way up for a rewatch of The Avengers.

Except that you can’t do that either because the family’s asleep in the next room, or you have the neighbours' fear.

Headphones are the key, but it’s tough sitting back with a long wire coming in your way. If you still want great sound pumped up to your ear without disturbing anyone else, you may want to think about going wireless.

Here are six wireless headphones to fit different budgets.

1. Zebronics Vivo Wireless Headphone (Rs 699)

Zebronics Vivo Wireless Headphone (Rs 699)
As a company, Zebronics has a good track record of making decent wired and wireless sound products at pocket-friendly prices. Priced at just Rs 699, Zebronics Vivo wireless headphones come with a radio receiver.

The Vivo uses a shortwave FM at 86MHz, with a range of 30 meters; you will have to be within line of sight of the receiver.

The headphone supports a good frequency response of 20-20,000Hz. It also has a mic in-built in case you play a lot of multiplayer games on your gaming consoles. For a bit more, you get the Intex Wireless Roaming headphones as an option too, which has somewhat similar features.

2. Philips SHC1300 (Rs 1,999)

While the price mentioned here is the MRP, one search of Philips SHC1300 will show you lots of discounts, with the going price as low as Rs 1,300. Unlike Zebronics Vivo, SHC1300 uses infrared wireless to transmit sound.

The over-the-ear cups are medium-sized, with decent 32mm drivers in them. You will need 2 AAA batteries in the headphones to power them, and the base unit is powered itself.

You get 15 hours of juice out of the AAAs before you need to reload. Like the Zebronics, don’t expect great sound, but these units do the job.

3. Sony MDR-IF245RK (Rs 4,990)

If you don’t like putting batteries in your headphones all the time, then Sony MDR-IF245RK is the perfect pair for you. With a Ni-MH rechargeable battery in the headphone, it provides enough for continuous 28-hour playback.

You just have to dock the headphones on the base station in order to charge them. The headphones sport on-the-ear design, but you get the full impact of the 40mm drivers. Lightweight with an adjustable headband, these headphones are one of the best if you get them at a good deal.

4. Sennheiser RS 110 II (Rs 5,990)

In terms of wireless audio devices, Sennheiser offers some quality products on the market. The RS 110 II is a base level model you can go for. Like Philips, you can find these headphones at a lower price than the MRP.

With a stylish base unit, these are supra-aural headphones that use RF radio signals for a very low distortion, though incoming calls and messages may interfere a bit. Offering strong bass, the RS 110 is the best bet for quality sound at a decent price.

5. Sennheiser RS 120 II (Rs 7,990)

A step up from the RS110 II, Sennheiser 120 II provides better sound and wireless connectivity up to 300 meters. You can even hear sound through walls, so listening to music while you move around is possible. 

Like Sony MDR-IF245RK, these come with rechargeable AAA batteries. With larger headphones offering better build quality, RS 120 II sit firmly between casual and audiophile quality sound. The base unit has a nifty cradle too for holding the headphones.

6. Sennheiser RS 180 (Rs 24,990)

Sennheiser RS 180 (Rs 24,990)
Now we are firmly in Audiophile territory, where price is not a factor, just sound quality is. Sennheiser’s big bad wolf, the RS 220, is not yet available in India, so RS 180 is the next best option available.

The big, open circumaural RS 180 uses Kleer's uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission that lets up to four people listen to the same sound source. With a frequency response of 18-21,000Hz and MSK modulation, you get clear sound for 100 meters in open space. Like Sony MDR-IF245RK and Sennheiser RS 120 II, the unit comes with 2 AAA rechargeable batteries.

These headphones are the best you can get in the market today for music enthusiasts looking for home theatre-quality sound for that extra oomph out of those Hollywood blockbusters.
